    Default WORLD OF NINTENDO fiberoptic light up sign???

    Hello everyone. Had a couple questions hopefully someone can help me out with. I have had my WORLD OF NINTENDO sign for quite some time now. (SEE PICS BELOW) I got it from a friend who owned a game store way back when. Anyways, the lights went out on it about one year ago and haven't gotten around to changing them, and didn't think it would be a problem to do so.

    But it happens that I can't find the florescent bulbs anywhere in stores that carry those kind of bulbs. On the sign itself it says what bulbs it takes but it had kind of faded over the years, BUT it looks like it says it takes bulbs:

    F25T12/CW/33"

    My question is is if anyone on here owns one of these signs, and if they have ever changed the bulbs on them or have ever ordered them before.
    I have done searches on course on google and they lead me to a couple different sites, but there comes up a couple different types of bulbs. There are ones that I would be kinda comfortable ordering, but really don't want to just waste my money if they don't work. (Unfortunately I might just have to do that??)
    Any help would be SO GREATLY appreciated!

    Well, putting F25T12 into Google came up with this site. I'm sure you'll have seen it if you've Googled too.

    I'd suggest just giving them a call and speaking to someone. Hopefully they'll be able to confirm if these are the correct bulbs, or point you in the right direction.

    Anyhow, good luck. That's a pretty cool sign you have there.

    I've got that sign, but only one tiny bulb is out on the opposite end. This sign is fiberoptic on both ends, correct?

    Yes, I did run across that one! Thanks though!
    I might end up just calling whatever place and maybe only order one then see if it works? Problem just the cheapest one I can find.

    If you mean the sign is fiberoptic on both "sides" then no. It's fiberoptic on one side, then on the other it's just the "World of Nintendo" metal sign.

    Have you ever ordered bulbs for it yet?
